    While this app looks amazing, and would work especially well with a convention centered around beautiful art such as anime, I’m a little hesitant. I’ve worked at many conventions, my favorite place in on the floor where every ten minutes I get asked “when is the 3:00 show”. At first I got annoyed at these questions, until I realized how easy a simple “its at 3:00” answer was, or several times I’ve walked several guests over to the hall where their panel is held.

    Its the several years of working in the service industry showing, but training staff and volunteers to know how to easily find information in the con guide and keeping them informed of changes is in my opinion the best way to handle dumb questions and keep the guests having the best experience they can have (and subsequently coming back next round with a few friends).

    I still think this app would be amazing, especially for the more seasoned con-goer, maybe not for the “Is hall D next to C or is it here in A” con-goer. Even better would be if the volunteer and staff members had this you’d kill two birds with one stone.

    Sorry that ran a little long, I’ll certainly look into this (I love tech stuff even though I still have a dumb phone).
